Ink.Stamp.Share September Blog Hop - Colour Challenge...


Good afternoon and welcome to the Ink.Stamp.Share Monthly Blog Hop.

You may have joined me from Tracie, or starting the hop here.

This month we have been set a Colour Challenge, when I say we, I actually mean I, as I am responsible for choosing the colours we have today.  We have been tasked with using a minimum of 3 of the colours.

I saw these colours on a totally non craft related item when browsing Pinterest and I thought how lovely they looked together.

I have to confess when it came to putting them to paper I struggled initially and, not happy with my first effort, I finally came up with this card for the hop.

This takes me totally out of my comfort zone as I am not known for simple cards but I was actually really pleased with the result.

Just for fun, here is my original card which I was really not happy with although I still can't tell you why but us crafters just know when something doesn't feel right and it doesn't matter how much experience we all have, we all definitely have those moments!!

Anyhow, I am now going to pass you on to Kirsty who I know will have something amazing to share with you today.

Happy Stampin'

  1. LOVE the HOME card with the little house - too cute!

  2. Love it, a really simple idea but looks fantastic xx

  3. I love a clean and simple card and yours is great!

  4. Both cards are super! I am addicted to those letter dies, always looking for a chance to use them.

  5. Love this card Jo, really need to use my letter dies!

  6. Lovely cards Jo, thanks for sharing.

  7. Simply stunning HOME card - love it! I also like the second card but know what you mean about something not quite right. Perhaps a white card base would do the trick? xx
